Center for Community Engagement Graduate Assistant

Location: Graduate School of Education and Counseling
$18/hr

The mission of the Center for Community Engagement (CCE) is to enhance the effectiveness of education and mental health professionals as agents of social change by providing equity-driven professional development. Our offerings prepare practitioners to meet the educational and mental health needs of all communities, and to advocate for equity and social justice within their fields of practice. CCE’s mission reflects the Graduate School’s mission and our programs and initiatives are developed, approved, and evaluated by faculty and colleagues under the same rigorous standards as our academic programs.

CCE programs are designed primarily to meet the needs of licensed graduates of degree-programs reflective of those at the Graduate School. This includes: classroom teachers; school building and district administrators; student affairs professionals; mental health counselors; marriage, couple and family therapists; school counselors; and school psychologists. Many are also open to the community in general and attract professionals from other fields, especially social workers, leaders from nonprofit organizations, community activists, and other citizens seeking skills and information that support efforts for social, cultural, and policy change.

The GA would work with the CCE director, program manager, and other team members on projects related to program development, community partnerships, training and educational events, and department administration. This would be a wonderful opportunity for a Student Affairs Administration student to gain a wide range of skills, ranging from program planning, project management, program evaluation, and community outreach and engagement.
